5.0 out of 5 stars THEIR FINEST MOMENT - WORTHY OF VINYL
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 12 February 2021
I've been into PE since 1987 and this, for me, is their best album. Of course, Nation of Millions is (rightly) seen as a legendary moment in music history, and I love it. But Fear of Black Planet is, in my opinion, more ambitious, more diverse, and all round more technically accomplished. Chuck D's lyrics build on the rebel fire of Nation of Millions and scale it up to 11, while his rapping is supreme: I don't think he's ever topped the speed and ferocity he achieves on 'War on 33⅓'. The singles - Fight The Power, Welcome to the Terrordome, Brothers Gonna Work It Out, 911 is a Joke, and (the highly prophetic) Burn Hollywood Burn - are sensational. But you can't even describe them as stand out tracks, given the quality of almost the entire B-91 side: Who Stole The Soul, Revolutionary Generation (rappers for feminism, a long way from where the genre has gone), B Side Wins Again and War on 33⅓ are just as good.

So I bought the cassette in 1990. Still works, still sounds great. But this epic album deserves the physical presence of Vinyl, and seeing the Def Jam logo spinning round just tops off the experience. When 'Brothers' kicks in (see video), it's a special moment, every time.

One of my 5 all time favourite records.
